I declare full credibility in giving 4.5 to this place as I've tested this place in many ways. This being my neighborhood resto, I've been a regular visitor for a varied reasons. In order to host my kid's bday party, despite bad reviews, I cautiously tried this place for dinner with spouse and fell in love with the ambience and selective menu. Ended up hosting 2 parties till now and Deccan Harvest has never disappointed me. People have already talked a lot about the ambience so I will restrict myself here and focus on something which is not covered in detail. The menu : Although limited, they have good variety for both sides of the globe - continental as well as oriental. They can definitely do better on the desserts front though. Food quality is good. mocktails are interesting. they take pride in chicken 69, which is worth trying. Potli Biryani can be avoided. Soups are my favorite here. Pizza is good. Yaki Tori was well made. Once tried prawns in lemon butter sauce and loved the sauce and prawn size. Service : I always call up before coming and they diligently ask for the preference towards indoor and outdoor seating. They are not reticent like the typical Puneri service industry is. They are flexible enough to accommodate my child's usual order of pasta with specific sauce and veggies. During my kids's bday party, they ensured extra servers were taking care of my guests not only from food point of view but other aspects like kids safety, comfort and creating a friendly environment. Mr Sam and his team is trying their best to keep up with customer's expectations. This place is blessed with big space and excellent location. They should cash on by refreshing their menu which may please critical foodies too.

Writing this review right from Deccan harvest while sitting on the table.... Came with friends.. Ambience and location is great.. But food and service is worst.... Waiters are pushy and one can smell kerosin in the beer.. Last visit we had this experience and now after two month we are here.. Still the same.. Stay away.. Or you can come here only to enjoy the location... And only order cold drinks... Unless you want to waste money on worst food and service.
